Hostess Gifts That Please
Friday, Jul 9, 2010 Updated at 2:15 AM CDT
Crashing a friend’s BBQ this weekend? Show up in style with a fun, random, or at least irresistibly delicious gift and you’ll be thanking yourself later -- especially when you’re too intoxicated to drive home and end up shacking up on their couch with the dog. Again.
Food never fails (well, unless it’s just plain bad). Bring an edible gift over to your friend’s house and they’ll be thanking you with every bite:
1. Delicious (and slightly naughty) Bourbon Bacon Popcorn from Salted Caramel
An array of freshly baked cookies from Cookie Bar
3. A dozen cupcakes from Sweet Mandy B’s. (Better make it two dozen, while you're at it).
5. Mo’s Bacon Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix from Vosges Chocolate, (for when you make your poor friend cook you up breakfast in the morning.)
For something besides grub, check out these party pleasers.
5. Show up with this BBQ Sword for the grill master and earn some awesome brownie (er, burger) points.
